Volcanic Winter by Mark Rutherford is a political thriller. Angus Probin is the President of the United States and playing fair has never featured in his life. Friends are not important; if someone can’t help him, he doesn’t want to know. But he knows how true it is to keep your enemies close and he monitors anyone who may think about betraying him. Robert Jenkins, Vice President, has garnered far more respect as a lawmaker and politician and has high morals. Add to that being an evangelical Christian and a man who defends conservative values, and you have a man the President is concerned about. Probin has been told that by using military action he can guarantee being re-elected by reversing global warming. The idea is mad and Jenkins knows it but can he stop it from happening? He has just one week to save the world – the most dangerous week in his life – but can he do it?

Volcanic Winter by Mark Rutherford is one of the most exciting, edge-of-your-seat stories I have ever had the pleasure of reading. Filled with current storylines, it exposes the political system perfectly in a story of high-octane thrills and spills. It is a scientific story but Mark has taken the time to ensure the non-scientific amongst us fully understand everything. The plot is thick with action and twists with a plot that engages you right from the start. A tense tale, the characters are brilliantly developed as real people in a storyline that we all know could very well happen at any time – nothing is beyond the realms of possibility anymore! Thoroughly enjoyed this and fully recommended it for anyone who wants to lose themselves in a novel that won't let go of you until the last page. Looking forward to reading more from Mark Rutherford in the future.
